East Windsor Cogeneration Centre (EWCC) is an 92 MW natural gas facility located on approximately 1.5 acres of industrial land in Windsor, Ontario. The facility was acquired from Veresen Inc. in February 2017. EWCC is fully contracted with the Ontario Independent Electricity System Operator until 2029.
Capital Power is proposing the East Windsor Generation Facility Expansion project to provide additional generation capacity to the Windsor area and provincial electricity grid until 2040. Learn more about this project.
